Western Australia is home to some of the nations most interesting and diverse flora. While the immense size of Western Australia means that there will be obvious local concentration on different species the invasive urban plants identified are those of greatest concern to the state as a whole. It is important to remember that an invasive plant in the neighbouring states and territories may not be invasive in WA and vice versa. It is prudent to seek sound local advice before making plant selection.

Western Australia is home to many significant national parks and state forest areas. It is of paramount importance that sound plant advice is sought before planting adjacent to these sensitive areas. Consideration must be given to appropriate plant choice as birds and other animals can distribute seeds into nearby bush-land and natural areas causing immeasurable destruction of natural habitat.
